a Numerical Investigation of the Meteorological and Photochemical Processes which Influence Tropospheric Ozone and Other Trace Constituents.
It is shown that if ozone was treated as an inert species in the troposphere, larger vertical eddy diffusion coefficients and an ozone flux from the stratosphere must be used to reproduce the observed tropospheric ozone profiles in the northern hemisphere mid latitudes during the summer. The possibility that methane oxidation reactions were responsible for the production of ozone in the troposphere was examined. The results of the two dimensional model indicated that ozone can be produced in the troposphere downwind from an area of anthropogenic emissions of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides.
